Established in 1985, the Information Management Department is one of the earliest departments of this field in Taiwan. In 1992, the Department set up its Master’s program to provide advanced courses in both computer technology and management theory. In 2004, the Department once sets up a Ph.D. program. In 2006, the EMBA program started. Currently, the Department has 20 full-time faculty members, 14 adjunct faculty members, and more than 880 undergraduates and graduate students.
The Department provides a superior educational environment with modern computer resources, high-level teaching facilities and field project opportunities. There are five laboratories in the Department, containing 198 workstations and 35 servers equipped with Windows Server 2003, Free BSD, Windows XP, Microsoft Office, MIS tools, DBMS systems, MSDN AA, and some multimedia software. The laboratories not only provides some popular application packages such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM), and Electronic Commerce (EC) middleware for faculties and students to implement their systems, but also offers some communication equipment like servers, routers, hubs and switches for experimentation. In addition, the department has built a security operation center (SOC) in the information security laboratory.
Practice by students as IT professionals at local firms and non-profit organizations is the key feature of the Department. In the System Implementation course, students working in teams take on an actual information system assigned by an employee or a manager in a company. The team works with their company client to collect information, perform analysis, evaluate alternatives, and design a system. The team presents the results as a written report and orally at a meeting with the clients as well as the advisors. The field project requires students to apply knowledge from many information management and business courses in a consistent, integrated framework.
